Strengthen your business analytics knowledge while working full time

The new Flex Master of Science in Business Analytics (MSBA) program at the Rady School of Management trains working professionals in the necessary skills to succeed in data-rich business environments while offering the opportunity to continue their full-time jobs. The Flex MSBA program meets every other Saturday and is designed to be completed in 17 months.*



The Flex MSBA program is one of only a few of its kind in the country and the only part-time MSBA program offered in Southern California. The curriculum and faculty are the same as the Full-Time MSBA program, ranked 10th in the country by QS International. The Full-Time MSBA program launched in 2016 and continues to grow every year.

The Flex MSBA is a STEM-designated program and is a great fit for working professionals who:

  • Are in a management position and who would benefit from a deeper understanding of analytics and the value of machine learning, or
  • Have technical expertise but need to translate and expand their “analytics toolbelt” to be able to create value in business contexts across marketing, finance and operations
